Back with a dress, a trip to Pocono Mountains and time to get back to Halloween costumes

I am so excited to getting back to sewing. My arm is feeling much better even though I still have 7 stitches to be removed. I sewed this beautiful dress in 2 hours on Friday. I only had 1/4 yard of this corduroy print left from another project, so I decided to use it wisely with that pink solid I had. I was able to pull it off and the result was this dress. 

I have never done a tie-back dress before, but figured it out and realized, its no-brainer at all. He is a close-up of the bodice.  

Why did I make this dress? For a trip to the Pocono mountains. Ironically I didn't get any good shot of BN in this dress while we were there. 

Beautiful Pocono Mountains is a 2 hour trip from our place. My family was going through some high tides and we needed some time away from home, and it was a long weekend here in the U.S. So off we went. We loved the fall colors and now AN wants us to move to the Poconos! Look at these pictures, who wouldn't want to move there...If only they had more technology jobs up there, but hey, wait, if technology comes in natural beauty would say bye-bye. So I guess you can never have technology and nature together in harmony. AN, sorry! Unless we win mega millions, there is no moving to Poconos in the near future. 

Look at it. It spells HEAVEN

How often you get to be in woods, up on your car's roof rack! Ha. 

Now that everybody is back on their schedules at home, I want to get back to finishing the Halloween costumes, superman & super girl. I can't wait to see AN BN wearing those and having a blast this Halloween. 

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week ahead!


  1. Nice fabric. I loved the place... no wonder your kids want to move there...

  2. Your dress is adorable. (So are your kids!) We don't see patterned corduroy here very often I wish we did. I'm glad you had a great trip. I'm a new follower!

  3. Anne, Thanks for the compliments :-)

    Just wanted to let you know, I got this corduroy print from fabric.com.


    You can see that there is a wonderful selection of corduroy prints.

  4. Love the dress! It's beautiful. I really like the lollipop flower fabric. And the pink trim around the bottom is such a cute addition. Thanks for sharing!


  5. Nice blog. Cute pictures and helpful tutorials as well. I like it.
